Contemporary Figurativism

Figurativism is a form of art that seeks to represent external reality.

Though long neglected by contemporary artists in favour of abstract and non-figurative approaches, it never disappeared entirely and is currently enjoying something of a resurgence, with works being showcased by Gagosian, Templon, The White Cube and hundreds of other leading galleries.

See Figurativism in a new light through our selection of works from the new generation of contemporary artists.
